Pootles Advent Countdown #19 Chocolate Box Tutorial

Another week dawns and a whole new month has started!

December the first, so that means that most of the UK has probably already got their Christmas decorations up and we’re now suddenly realising that Christmas is just mere weeks away.  Anyone else not yet completed their Christmas shopping???

But I do still have another 2 week’s of Advent Countdown projects for you, and this week we’re starting with a gorgeous Chocolate Box!

I’ve called it that because the original sample is very chocolatey and decadent, but I quite fancy seeing chocolate truffles inside it too…

I had fun making the project, it’s not a ‘new’ box, but I don’t think I’ve ever made on in this size before, and certainly never made the crazy rosette that’s featuring in it!
